Fr. Cassian Speaks on Summorum Pontificum at Brompton Oratory

Fr. Cassian greeting Pope Benedict
News from Norcia:
On Friday, December 13th, 2013, Fr. Cassian Folsom, O.S.B., prior and founder of the Monastery of San Benedetto located in Norcia, Italy, gave a talk in London at the Brompton Oratory on Pope Emeritus Benedict’s motu proprio, Summorum Pontificum.

About 50 friends of the monastery gathered for a lovely evening, where Fr. Cassian explained how “Summorum Pontificum establishes a veritable thicket of legal protection so that no harm can be done to the sacred liturgy.” The full text can be obtained here (audio is available at the Norcia website).

This talk will surely be of keen interest to the readers of New Liturgical Movement. It is a careful study that demonstrates how wise Pope Benedict was when he issued the motu proprio and its supporting legislation.
